To everybody’s surprise, including mine, I am on track with these weekly mixed cuentos. I am, however, thinking about moving to monthly such articles, because time does not allow me find enough quality things to recommend and I would rather not lose the little charm they have, that being my heart along the lines, because I am usually emotionally invested in everything appearing here.

To end things, a valuable piece of advice:
and a potential cure for the chronic wanderlust….
Have a nice week!
